From the view of different sectors, overcapacity situation of textile, papermaking, chemical fiber non-metallic and steel industries are relatively more serious and more than 70 percent of business operators from these industries are of the opinion that there is "serious surplus capacity" or "somewhat excessive capacity".

With regards to capacity utilization of manufacturing enterprises in 2008, 38.2 percent of manufacturing enterprises were operating at "75 percent or below", 40.6 percent of the enterprises were running between "75 ~ 90 percent", 21.2 percent of the enterprises maintained at "90 percent or above” and average capacity utilization of manufacturing enterprises was 77.1 percent in 2008.
